There are vast expanses of palm-fringed beaches and lagoons with safe bathing, warm waters and good fishing. The country is rich in wildlife with several excellent parks and reserves to encounter rare birds, big game and abundant marine life. It also has islands that are dotted with historical monuments.
There are a number of really nice beach resorts on Mozambique`s long coastline. Go diving and snorkelling with dolphins, rays and dugong (manatee) in the country`s crystal-clear Indian Ocean waters. The growing number of resorts are well-equipped for these activities, and several are in excellent locations. Try the reefs of Inhambane, the Bazaruto Archipelago or Quirimbas National Park.
Take a safari through some of the country`s 12 different national parks and reserves. The big five (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhino) can all be found here, and plenty more besides.
The cool mountains of the north and several national parks offer good hiking.
